What will it take for you to put your sports team loyalty aside and stand up for what's right? Or is it too much of a hassle to stop goose stepping right along?

And I've got a conservative aunt who's like that as well. If her husband likes something, she likes it. If he doesn't, she doesn't.

Same thing when we lived in Wyoming (also a very Republican state). It's the whole "stand by your man, listen to him, as he's the head of the household and always right" type of mentality.

Obviously that doesn't explain all the women who vote Republican, of course, but it's one theory to put out there.
So ......
So glad I was born and raised (by liberal parents), live in a more liberal city!

hmm.... We're those the Log Cabin Republicans?

I'm so furious. Luckily I have lots of things to divert my attention, ruminations.
And then GOTV in Nov.

The more people that vote just might get past all the voter supression, hacking that might/will happen! Don't give up now!

Remember when Susan Collins stood up for Al Franken because there was no investigation into the claims against him

Oh that’s right, she didn’t. She called for him to resign immediately

SCOTUS has no legitimacy anymore. Kavanaugh cannot be taken seriously, especially on any issue related to sex or gender.

Everything Trump touches turns to trash.

If you still support Trump after what he just did notnjust to SCOTUS but to sex assault victims (of whom he’s created many) you are a garbage person.

And that’s the end of it. You are garbage if you support Trump and vote for an R in November.

Nothing says "we believe victims of sexual abuse" like voting in a guy who's accused of sexual abuse.

That Susan Collins is a portrait in courage.

So she didn't lay out her thoughts plainly and logically about Al Franken? Ok then. Well we didn't have any pictures of Kavanaugh doing what he allegedly did, maybe that's it.

How come she didn't mention any of Kavanaugh's political rantings yesterday? The rantings during the hearing, such as "revenge about the Clintons". When he said that it was as if Trump wrote it for him. All it needed was a dose of emails.

Honestly when she brought up Merrick Garland to justify Kavanaugh I turned off the tv. There is literally no shame in her or any of them.

I wonder how Collins does it. Does she tell all of her fellow republican colleagues that worry that she might vote the other way “sorry guys I have to make a stink but don’t worry!”???

Murkowski and Manchin probably agreed to trade votes.

We should throw the entire Republican Party in the dumpster fire. They are all seriously useless evil sub humans. The whole lot of them.

Nah.

Murkowski always had the cover she needed at home due to Kavanaugh being openly hostile in his decisions regarding native land rights. The sexual assault was icing on the cake.

Manchin is just a piece of crap.

I‘d edit that to say that it’s about race and about abortion. That just about covers it.

Murkowski said absolutely nothing until Flake took the heat and Collins sealed the deal. Same goes for Manchin.

Guarantee Murkowski and Manchin would’ve had different votes had their votes mattered. This is all a game, and Murkowski/Manchin just capitalized on two very unpopular pariahs.

She said nothing while Collins assured all of us that Kavanaugh promised RvWade is settled law and blathered on about him positively for weeks.

Murkowski was quietly meeting with Alaskan native groups, many comprised primarily of women. The Alaska Gov and Lt Gov also came out against Kavanaugh 2-3 weeks ago and gave her political cover. She was a no a long time ago in my opinion.

I don't want to give her too much credit as she tends to be as you've alluded to, the vote that never matters. But I don't think she and Manchin traded votes. She was always a no, and he was waiting to see if he could vote Yes with impunity.

As for Flake, he's totally deluded that he can be President someday. This vote means he will never accomplish that. But it would be SO much fun to watch him take on Trump in the 2020 primary and get shredded to bits. He'll literally be eaten alive.

Let's not kid ourselves.

The people who are about abortion vote for every republican in every election.

Trump didn't win because of them.

He brought out white fear.
